So you've decided to get on your Dad Shit, eh? Planning on rocking sunglasses with a neckstrap, a beanie in the morning to protect that bare dome, and solid colored button-down flannels? Looking to organize fishing trips with old buddies of yours? Gonna tell some corny, very un-funny jokes, are you?
Patrik Ervell's Selvedge Denim jeans will be your new go-to for pants that exude real dad vibes, without the ridiculous, costume party feel associated with bootleg, light-wash jeans. Seeing hordes of ladies in long-butt-syndrome-inducing mom jeans, (you know, those high-waisted vintage denim shorts that they just won't. Let. Die.?) has taught us a few lessons about cut, color and fit. You've gotta tread lightly around these styles, since they aren't the most simple look to rock.
But Ervell has shortened the 80s high-waist, added a darker shade of shuttle loomed indigo at the cuffs and tightened up on the chainstitch construction, rendering the Selvedge Denim guys more modern than anything you could pick up at a thrift store.
Plus, they're available in larger sizes - up to 36. And that's something most Busch-guzzling dads can appreciate.
